BARNSLEY joiner Lee Parsons and his bride-to-be are looking forward to a dream wedding abroad after scooping a five-figure cash prize in a competition.

Lee, 49, was approached on the site he is working on by BOTB presenter Christian Williams who told him that he’d won a Mercedes SL55 AMG worth £25,000.

But with plans for a wedding to partner, Laura, already underway, Lee decided to take the cash alternative that BOTB offers.

“I was astonished when Christian approached me on the site but I saw the BOTB badge and recognised him from videos,” said Lee.

“Laura and I were planning to get married in Greece in 2024 but this means we should be able to bring it forward a bit, which is great.”
